    Great looking thing. the whole aggressive track theme really looks good on the 599. Those wheels look a lot like the BBS Fi.


    Re: Ferrari 599 GTO

    I especially like those wheels. I wished they would have offered similar ones for the 458.

    Re: Ferrari 599 GTO

    3.4 second to 60 mls/hr isnt that a tad slow these days for such a performance focused car? It does not weigh more than the current 997.2tt and the F1 transmission is definitely not slower than the pdk. Ok its rwd but with pretty sticky new tires so I would expected this to be lower. 0-200 in under 10 seconds in pretty good though for stock car (even though the mp12c will be faster by around 0.5 seconds for half the price).

    Re: Ferrari 599 GTO

    Stunning car. This thing will have a real road presence.


    Re: Ferrari 599 GTO

    458 has better technology and is cheaper!! and also the new model of 599 is coming... 


    Re: Ferrari 599 GTO

    The two aren't comparable. Completely different cars for different purposes.


    Re: Ferrari 599 GTO

    The GTO is stunning and it's technology and set up unrivalled Berfes.

    3,35s 0-100km/h means 0-60mph in about 3,2s. Which is awesome for a front-engined RWD car. I actually refuse to believe this kind of time will be achieved in all the magazine tests. 0-200km/h in 9,8s is also great and whats more, Ferrari is usually underestimating this figures. For 599GTB it officialy is 11,0s and it did 10,3s in a test, for Scud 11,6 and it did 11,0s etc...

    This car is stunning. Smiley


    Re: Ferrari 599 GTO

    Ferrari's new extreme V12 berlinetta, the 599 GTO, delivers a lap time of just 1 minute and 24 seconds at Fiorano, making it the fastest road-going model in our history This limited edition special series of just 599 is the new pinnacle of Prancing Horse sportiness and has benefited to an enormous degree from technological transfers from the track. Many of the cutting-edge solutions sported by the 599 GTO are also the product of the Maranello engineers' experience in the development of the 599XX, the prototype experimental car of which, as its legendary moniker suggests, the 599 GTO is the road-homologated version


    Re: Ferrari 599 GTO

    One is reserved for me I can't wait to start speccing out the car!


    Re: Ferrari 599 GTO

    I don't know.. I read 0-60 in 3.4 seconds in a couple of articles. Also I am not sure about ferrari understating their perf numbers. I think its probably the other way around as it has also been proved with the announced weight of their cars. In any case I am sure it'll bags of presence and driving feel just like every ferrari. This is really what they are selling and they are the best in the world at it.

    Re: Ferrari 599 GTO

    I like the part of being limited to "only" 599 cars. Its a Ferrari - I though that they are a low volume manufacture and hence 599 cars is a lot to me. 59 would be limited in that context. In any case a friend of mine is getting one too so I hope to steal a ride...

    Re: Ferrari 599 GTO

    Times have changed, production numbers are not that low anymore, even at Ferrari.

    Re: Ferrari 599 GTO

    I saw quite a few GTO's last week at the factory. It looks superb. Far, far more aggressive than a regular 599 and the noise is incredible. They brought one round to the Atelier for a Japanese customer to see and the sound on start up is sublime. I rather liked a completed car on the V12 line in this scheme.

    Looks amazing Smiley I only ask myself what this car should be good for. Somehow I don't believe it is ideally suited for the track (knowing the regular 599). And do the changes do any good in off-track driving for the typical 599 customer Smiley


    Re: Ferrari 599 GTO

    It's good for Ferrari making money.

    Re: Ferrari 599 GTO

    It's a much needed boost to 599 sales which have slowed down considerably I believe.

    Isuk! You heard one and you didn't sneak in a camera phone video? Smiley


    Re: Ferrari 599 GTO

    Some guy recorded this a week or so ago. The first few minutes have some nice sounds.


    Re: Ferrari 599 GTO

    the new "real " ferrari is the 458, this 599 gto looks like a mercedes or bmw.....


    Re: Ferrari 599 GTO

     I thought real Ferraris should come in V12s.  Smiley

    You're going to love this car for sure Mike. It sounds like a LeMans racer on start up and idle.

    The interior looks totally different just with the change to the use of technical fabric, alcantara and a very, very nice satin finish carbon fibre trim. Of the two tone cars I like the rosso corsa with the satin black roof. There weren't any with the historic racing livery with the horizontal yellow stripe across the bonnet but the Atelier guy said it was his favourite look for the car.

    There are no "real" Ferraris. There are several models for different tastes.


    Re: Ferrari 599 GTO

    Someone sneaked a camera into the production line. Here is the 599 in Bianco Avus with blue stripe I saw. It has ball polished wheels on one side and satin black finish on the other. I gues this car is destined for the Atelier.
